Mister Holland

  • Hello, Mister Holland
    And Rosie may come out and play
    She's a good girl now
    Won't be no trouble, no how

    By the way, Mister Holland
    I like the way you make no trouble of my skin
    It's not a problem
    Nor has it ever been
    You invited me into your home
    Treated me like I was grown
    I was only eighteen
    And Rosie was a beauty queen

    Hello, Mister Holland
    And Rosie may come out and play
    I'm a good boy now
    Won't be no trouble, no how
    By the way, Mister Holland
    I like the way you treat me like a regular Joe
    I wanted a soda
    And you said Rosie could go

    Anyway, I like your style
    Seemed like I'll be around for a while
    We can talk about a country mile
    And listen to a blues record, check it out, oh

    Hello, Mister Holland
    And Rosie may come out and play
    It's a good world now
    Won't be no trouble, no how, hmm
    And by the way, Mister Holland
    I like the way you treat me like a regular being
    My name is not a problem
    And oh, it never will

    Anyway, I like your way
    People ought to be able to play
    And keep your soul as black as the night
    When you walk in straight into the light
    Oh, now

    Anyhow, I like your way
    People ought to be able to play
    Keep your soul as black as the night
    As you walk into the brighter light

    Mama used to fear for me
    When you walk out in the world, you see
    Some people will fear your face and name
    But Mister Holland, don't play that game

    Oh, Mister Holland
    Oh, Mister Holland
    Oh, Mister Holland
    Oh, always treat me right
    Ayy, Mister Holland
    Oh, Mister Holland
    Oh, Mister Holland
    Oh, Mister Holland always treat me right
    Mister Holland
    Hey, Mister Holland
    Thank you, Mister Holland
    You sure 'nuff treat me right

    Mister Holland
    Hey, Mister Holland
    Hey, Mister Holland
    But you always treat me right, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh no, oh Writer/s: Gregory Porter
